Summary: This camera took fine pictures, but the software didn't work. I was told by Nikon tech support that software problems were common and maybe "they rushed this product to market". The software wouldn't let me crop,reduce red eye or catalog photos as it was supposed to do. I returned to camera for a refund. An altogether frustrating experience. Don't buy.
Summary: While seemingly well-built, this camera was returned after a few weeks of use. After using Canon's for years, this camera took great picutres, when they weren't blurry or over/under exposed. There are too many settings that change the white balance, etc. that made shooting quick photos a pain. Movies worked well until you played them back (only in quick time), but were choppy and crackly. Recycling between pictures took forever, so you missed a lot of shots.
Summary: This camera of beautiful design and manufacture is not up to par with its Canon S400/S500 peers. The quality of the pictures leaves a lot to be desired with respect to clear/sharp focus, white balance and noise levels. Indoor photos are especially noisy and this becomes evident any time you try to print sizes over 5X7" (not too big). I have seen lots of prints from Canon S400 cameras that beat the crap out of this Coolpix.
Summary: When I bought this camera around 6 months ago I was expecting to be blown away. I was NOT. I have had many problems with this but the two that have caused me the most difficulty are its complete inability to focus on an object in under a week, and the god-awful software you are given with this camera! All I can day is that with no Black and White or Sepia option, Manual Focus and many other problems I WISH I HAD BOUGHT THE CANON!
Pense que era la sucesora logica de mi coolpix 3700 no!

Summary: Pense que la Coolpix 5200 era la sucesora logica de mi nikon Coolpix 3700 , pero me cai feo , ya que pude hacer comparaciones con ambas y me di cuenta que independiente de la resolucion y diseño de la 5200 que es superior, me di cuenta que el tema de enfoque automatico de esta ultima deja mucho que decir ya que no logra realisar enfoques precisos asi que la posibilidad de poder sacar mejor partido a una foto de mayor tamaño osea con mas resolucion se ve truncada por este...
Excerpt: Читаешь отзывы и возникает ощущение, что говорят о разных аппаратах, настолько они противоположны зачастую :)
Pros: Компактность, быстрый автофокус, приличная (но не идеальная) работа автомата.
Cons: -Снимки темнее, чем у использованных аналогов, и слегка уходят в синеву., -Прилично греется, как следствие количество горячих пикселей тем больше, чем дольше не выключать камеру, -Значок разряда батареи появляется непосредственно перед ей подыханием, -Неважное видео и сильные звуковые шумы
